Elia Photo Service
This is a picture of the Kotel, known in English as either the Wailing Wall or the Western Wall. It is one wall supporting the side of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, on top of which Solomon's Temple was built and also where the Second Temple was built. Now there are a pair of ancient mosques on top of the mount, called Al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock.
This picture was taken in 1900. It shows Jews worshipping at the Wall.
What's unusual about it?
Back then, men and women obviously prayed together at the Wall. They don't any more, like the Jews of today know so much more about how things are supposed to be done than Jerusalem's Jews did over a century ago.
May 2013 be a year when we learn to rank our priorities and not to devote so much energy to that which is both inflammatory and unimportant
and may 2013 be a good, healthy, and prosperous year for you and yours. May you suffer no significant losses this year.
